Visiting my brain at the funny farm.

...and the advertisers wonder why people so happily skip through the ads with their DVR's.
Perhaps it's in part because we're tired of ya'll screaming at us ya moe-rons.

Supposedly it's illegal for them to raise the volume level ads are recorded at, and stations to raise the volume level they are played at, but as I understand it, they get around that by raising the levels on everything else to 11, base, treble, and all between, which makes it sound much louder.

I see they address that in the article, now that I actually read it...seems it's a bit more complex than my simple explanation.
